  • "We enjoyed our dinner- nice variety of entree options. At the server's recommendation we sampled the avocado, crab, mango appetizer. Very refreshing. Portion size was generous and served with flair- pleasing to the eye."

  • "Our waiter was friendly and knowledgable about the menu. He was the best part of our dining experience. The appetizers were delightful, but the main courses were on the smaller side"

  • "Great restaurant with shuttle service to Music Center, reasonable valet parking. Entire staff bent over backwards to get us to the Disney on time, yet able to make us feel uncrushed so we could get to concert onetime. Good size martini made perfectly and menu selection was creative for the more adventurous but plenty of the usual fish/shellfish standards. All fresh and tasty. Terrific waiter from Chicago who gave honest opinions and didn't try to "upsell" which can be annoying!"

  • "Our reservation was for Kerry's birthday - no special menu for her, no dessert for her until requested, server was unaware. Steaks & trout were great, mahi was very good, however, sauce tasted just like catsup; gruyere potatoes very good, cheddar potatoes were thin & bland in comparison; we were;very disappointed in the creamed spinach since it was mostly cream & not much spinach; hard sour dough bread was not easy to pull apart, cut or eat & butter was unsalted; clam chowder was good but not hot; chopped salad needed more ingredients & larger portion. I understand that I am critical, however, value for price paid was not quite appropriate."

  • "Would not recommend this restaurant. Service was good but the food lacking in flavor significantly."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "It was just alright. I remember it being much better. It was nice enough but will not return. The views are real nice and romantic. I always find it lame that every dish gets the exact same veggies with the meal. The veggies should reflect what you are eating and not just easy to plate every dish. Service was okay at best.....but most of the staff was real nice."

  • "We started off on the wrong foot. We arrived with our party of seven only to be told that our reservation had "disappeared", and they were going to try to fit us in. I was thrown off by this because I had made a reservation through open table, and received confirmation. Besides, the restaurant didn't seem too busy. We waited about 10 mins, until they realized another large party hadn't shown up, and they gave us their table. Once we were seated, the experience was good. We were approached within minutes of sitting with bread and water (upon request). We placed our drinks order and the Hibiscus margarita was AH-mazing! The food redeemed them as well. All the appetizers (mostly seafood) and dishes (a mix of steaks and pasta) were great."

  • "McCormick & Schmick's is our all time favorite dinner spot. We have been dining here for years, and Thomas Robinson gets it right every time. He never disappoints. We celebrate all birthdays and special occasions with Thomas, and our guests are always impressed. Thomas is a true assets to the Landers Corporation."

  • "We had eaten at this McCormick's a number of times over the years and were really looking forward to pre-theater dinner this past Saturday. Although the service was great, my request for an enclosed booth was accommodated, etc., the food left a little to be desired. Our guests didn't complain, of course, but my parmesan encrusted sole didn't have the flavor I expected, and my partner's shrimp and crab entrée was also lacking. (However, the red pepper white cheddar mashed potatoes was excellent.) The broccolini was good but could have benefitted from some seasoning. We have had excellent dinners here in the past and things just were a bit flat. We were at the McCormick's a year ago (mall near Angel Stadium) -- much better."

  • "We arrived at 1:30 PM. It looked like a shift change. No one came to take a drink order. Finally I asked a bus service man to get our waiter. Two waiters looked at each other and nothing, Finally a server came over. and was rushing through his routine. We like this M&S location and the one in El Segundo, CA. And we will try it again. But not soon."

  • "They were off their game. Requested no dressing on salad and got (what seemed like) extra dressing -- chicken was saturated in dressing. Obvious fish taste in the chicken -- grilled on same surface without cleaning? Had to ask for water -- no refills during entire meal. Usually offered bread -- not on this visit. Will be back for sure -- usually outstanding."

  • "I've been to several McCormick & Schmick's in about 3 different states and several cities. This one was my worst experience. It could have been the waiter or where we were seated (right by the kitchen. Our waiter rushed to our table and immediately started complaining about how busy he's been and how he can't wait to get off his shift; to me, that's completely unprofessional. I love asking the waiter their opinion about dishes but he really couldn't care less about what I was looking for. He literally just said "nay" or "yay". I've had great experiences at other M&S restaurants so it was unfortunate that I had to go through this one. With the overabundant choices I have in downtown L.A, I won't be going back."

    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The food was fine but not special. The salad was good with walnuts and the request of romaine lettuce was honored. The main problem is that the food was not hot and one of the sides was cold. The experience seemed overpriced for what we got."

  • "We decided to dine at McCormick and Schmick’s for Valentine’s Day and also to celebrate a birthday. We received very poor service beginning when we walked in and this continued with our waiter. .I have left a comment for the restaurant and would like to be contacted if they would like to receive additional feedback. If I am not contacted I would not be surprised and it would confirm my current opinion that they truly are not interested in providing the best customer experience. I will also make sure I continue to tell others about my experience so they do not dine with this establishment."

  • "I love the food here and the service was great. Cosmopolitan was great -- not watery or too sweet. Had delicious appetizers, a very good caesar salad dressing, steelhead trout that was tops and the molten chocolate cake is a winner. Also, quiet and there is space for groups or a romantic corner. Best part is that it is an easy walk to Disney Hall/Music Center for evening dining, Civic Center for days, and 3 Metro stations (7th/Metro, Pershing Square or Civic Center)."

  • "What do a bunch of teachers do when they are in Los Angeles to attend CTA's State Council? Eat at McCormick & Schmick's. Always a great decision. Food and service are great. Proximity to our hotel is great. The menu choices satisfy all. I had the King Salmon, grilled, with an interesting array of vegetables, red and yellow beets were the best. My colleague chose the same dish pan seared, delicious. Others were impressed by their picks, including shrimp and beef dishes. I recommend the wedge salad to start you off."

  • "We conveniently booked our reservations online. Tasteful wood, brass and glass interior but not too dark or too bright. It was obvious that our server, John, was a professional. I requested martinis prepared a certain way and was happily obliged. These cocktails were enjoyed while taking in the view of nearby skyscraper's. Both our entrees were prepared without flaw, including my partners steak . The sides suggested by John were a fine compliment to the meal. From reservation to bill, it was a fantastic experience. We were visiting Los Angeles for pleasure but I would not hesitate conducting any business lunch or dinners at this establishment as well. We will be back."
